1701 Franciacorta Brut

1701 Franciacorta Brut is a blend of Chardonnay 85% and Pinot Nero 15%. Its full palate is balanced by marked acidity. Mineral hints softened by fresh fruits and a lingering flavour of red apple.

On the top of Santa Giulia hill, beside the cluniac church of the same name, the glorious eighteenth century villa Palazzo Cazzago is home to the 1701 winery. The villa is part of ancient land belonging to the noble families of Bettoni and Cazzago. The land includes approximately 15 hectares of hillside in Cazzago San Martino, Franciacorta.

The name 1701 was chosen to recall the first vinification of their “brolo”, a 4-hectare vineyard framed by XI century walls.
1701 Franciacorta is a 10 ha organic certified winery now in conversion to Demeter. As members of Renaissance des Appellations they follow biodynamic farming methods – an approach which excludes any chemical intervention. It is ultimately a philosophy of life, about working closely with the vine, understanding and respecting its life cycle until the point when bottled it can fully express its vitality and character and above all the authenticity of its terroir. From Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards, they produce Franciacorta Brut, Satèn and Rosé and a Vintage Dosaggio Zero in exceptional years. The range also includes Sullerba, a semi sparkling Chardonnay ‘sur lie’.

Grapes are hand harvested and whole bunches are put into stainless vats except the Sullerba which is fermented 50% in amphora. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle – the Sullerba is on the lees for 18 months, the Saten and the Brut spend 30 months before bottling. The Sullerba is unfiltered, whereas the other two undergo a very light filtration.

PROSECCO BUYING GUIDE This is a: Extra Dry Prosecco (12-17 g/l of sugar) The most traditional type of Prosecco. The mellow yet crisp taste is a result of its very well-balanced acidity.

Bastia Rebuli Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti Quick View

Bastia Rebuli Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti 2016

Straw yellow in colour with the delicate delicate perlage typical of Frizzante wines. This wine is a jump into the history of Prosecco, when locals used to call it in the local dialect "el vin col fondo” - "the wine with sediment". This is in fact a traditional Colfondo Frizzante wine, with in-bottle fermentation and storage on the yeast lees. Without filtering or clarification, this wine takes on unique and unmistakable features, and its complexity is overwhelming and fascinating. If shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy; the smell is characterised by yeasty notes, crust of bread and yellow ripe fruit; the taste is bone-dry and pleasantly sapid. Bastia Rebuli winery is located in the heart of Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG appellation. With the "Capo degli Onesti" they wanted to celebrate Prosecco, its history and tradition; for this reason they decided to label this wine as "Vino Frizzante Bianco", just like their grandparents used to do years and years ago.

Pol Roger Brut Quick View

Pol Roger Brut

Pol Roger Brut Reserve is synonymous with classic, brilliant Champagne. The Champagne has its devout disciples within the trade - almost a trade secret! When you get to taste it you will understand why the trade want to keep it for themselves. The small, classic bubbles, perfumed spice, vanilla and coffee leading to a fruit filled bundle of vibrant tastes finishing with elegant spices and a hint of butter. On the nose, white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality dominate the champagne. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. The aperitif champagne par excellence but one, which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with a variety of foods.

Bastia Cartizze Prosecco Grand Cru Expensive Prosecco Quick View

Bastia Rebuli Valdobbiadene DOCG Superiore di Cartizze Prosecco Dry 2015

Pale straw yellow in colour with an fine and persistent perlage. The aromas are deep and delicate with flower notes like the rose, the field’s violet and fruity scents of apple and September peach. On the palate it is mellow, appealing and velvety, lightly aromatic. The important residual sugars in the wine (25 g/l) are perfectly balanced with the huge minerality that comes from the hill of Cartizze and its soil. This all gives the impression of a drier wine, but which very smooth and balanced on the palate. Cartizze is widely considered to be the "Grand Cru" of Prosecco.

Bastia Rebuli Brut Zero Sugar Prosecco calories DOCG “Introvers0” - best low calorie Prosecco Quick View

Zero Sugar Prosecco DOCG Introvers0 by Bastia Rebuli 2017

Grapes come from 2 vineyards: Saccol and Bastia. They are pressed together at the same time to better balance the organoleptic character of each single parcel. On the nose, this gorgeous wine shows all the aromatic fruity character of Glera grapes. To the palate, it keeps the pleasant roundness and smooth finish typical of Prosecco, but without the need of any sugars. Its name means “introvert” in Italian, since it does not give confidence right away... but, for those who can wait, this wine will be absolutely overwhelming! With its 0 g/l of residual sugars, the Introvers0 is a very rare example of an actual sugar free Prosecco. This is why it is the lowest sugar Prosecco you can find on the UK market, and one of the lowest calories fizz too!

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago Quick View

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2017

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.
